About the Event

My Shadow Is Your Shadow film trailer HERE  (there are no trailers with Eng subtitles, but the film plays with English subtitles!) 

Giuseppe Maggio and Marco Giallini star as an odd couple who embark on a road trip across Italy in an old jeep in this entertaining generational comedy, based on Edoardo Nesi’s eponymous novel.

Emiliano (Maggio) is a twenty-five-year-old who has just graduated with honours in Ancient Literature, while Vittorio (Giallini) is a gruff sixty-year-old writer who has been leading a hermit’s life in a farmhouse in Florence following the publication of his only book, which was a worldwide success.

The two make their way to Milan on a journey full of adventures and quarrels, all the way to a retro fair where Vittorio has agreed to give a speech, breaking over twenty years of silence, catching the attention of all of Italy and eagerly followed live on social media.

Awaiting them at the fair in Milan are Milena, the author’s great love,  and Emiliano's girl friend who has tired of their relationship but is willing to give him a second chance if she can get to the Event with her friends. 

 An enormous crowd is gathered,  eager to hear Vittorio come to terms with his past and his plans for his next novel . Under the gaze of the country and gripped by nostalgia what will he do?  

Well you have to come and find out. 

The film’s title is a quote from Malcolm Lowry’s novel Under the Volcano (“I have no house, only a shadow. But whenever you are in need of a shadow, my shadow is yours.”),

"A hilarious adventure in intergenerational differences, approaches to life, love, and partying." BMA

" Flows smoothly." Cineuropa.
